Question about 1998 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup
I have 1995 S10 Pickup with a 4.3L V6. The engine makes a pinging noise and lacks power. Also, my fuel MPG is poor. Any suggestions?
Engine ping can be a bad valve or berring so if there is a bad valve or berring your going to have to have the engine opened up. If its just dirty and from being clogged up, you can try useing products like Seafoam. Caution special note. you can go to Utube and look up how to do this. its not hard to do, it can be dangerous. If you play with things that light on fire, there is always a chance of getting hurt or doing damage.
You must make your own decision to try this to fix it.
Sometimes when the engine is just dirty and needs to get cleaned up a litle, this can help a lot. but if dirt is the only thing holding something together. when you clean it, it will break on you. So please consider if you really want to do this first.
I have done this on a regular basis and the Seafoam seams to work pretty good.
Hope I have helped and given you something to think about.

You might have a clogged catalttic converter..

It sounds like pre-ignition. You can try switching to a colder spark plug, running premium fuel, or using seafoam to blow out any carbon in the engine.
Check for loose spark plugs..
